Born and raised in Chicago, Amy spent much of her childhood wallpapering her bedroom walls with the colorful and glamorous pages of fashion magazines. She learned how to sew her senior year of high school and what developed was her first passion: designing. Within five years, she had become an award-winning designer and founder of the popular handcrafted t-shirt line Amy Tangerine. Her collections were featured in hundreds of retail outlets, including Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Barneys New York, and yielded impressive worldwide sales.
In 2007, her business expanded to include scrapbooking, with her fashion design work now being produced on a custom basis. Her love for sharing her clothing and now also paper crafts takes all over the world.
When she's not at home in Los Angeles, California with two mischievous Jack Russell Terriers, her long-time partner, JC and their adorable son, Jack, she is traveling, finding great places to eat, and doing her best to enjoy every moment. All while Instagrammingeverything along the way. Amy loves salted caramel anything, doggy cuddles, baby giggles, palm trees, riding her beach cruiser, and nachos. Always nachos.
